Nvidia GeForce GTX Titan Z is supposed to be a representative of a new generation of graphics solutions, targeting mainly high-efficiency PC systems. In whatever way, the model is not targeting gaming systems, so that its potential could be entirely employed by the developers of audio-video content. As it was mentioned beforehand, the card is based on two Nvidia GK110 chips with the summary 5760 CUDA cores, 96 ROPs, and 448 TMUs. Still, clock frequency index has not been unveiled so far.

Video storage is compiled by 12 GB of GDDR5 memory with 768-bit interface. According to the designers, an efficient memory …

Kingston and Adata Come up with M.2 SSDs

Within the framework of Computex 2014 both Kingston and Adata are going to introduce their fresh SSD series of M.2 form-factor. In keeping with the manufacturers’ words, the products – SM2280S2 and SR1020NP — are differentiated by some spectacular performance. At present the companies provide only basic info about the drives, leaving their fans in suspense.

Kingston SM2280S3 is based on Phison PS3108 that supports SATA 6 Gb/sec interface only. It ensures 540 MB/sec and 514 MB/sec speed on sequential Read/Write operations. For sure, it’s not the performance innovative M.2 drives should demonstrate (about 10 Gb/sec), although the model considerably surpasses traditional HDDs in this respect.

This SSD series is represented by three models of 120 GB, 240 GB and 480 GB capacity. All of them employ DDR3 cache-memory with the minimal 256 MB capacity. Besides, the difference in efficiency between other M.2 offers Kingston promises to compensate by a more affordable price.
